We start on Wednesday with the production of The Trojan Women by the famous Polish director Jan Klata

Polish director Jan Klata has won several awards for his distinctive and progressive interpretations of renowned theatre plays. Outside Poland, he has directed productions throughout Europe, including Prague, and his work was also presented at the Divadlo festival in Pilsen. His non-conformist and provocative attitude and his social and political engagement are also reflected in his approach to directing. This year, Klata presents his interpretation of an ancient Greek drama in a production of the Polish Wybrzeże theatre about war, the fate of women and the barbarity of the victors. Klata does not set the story in a specific time and space, as the ahistorical costumes suggest, but rather conveys a general truth that war has no winners.
